“I sent her a friend request, after a week, I asked her to marry me and she accepted. We even exchanged vows inbox,” Musyoki said.

In 2018, Musyoki noted that he was set to travel to the US to meet his lover but he did not make it after being denied a visa.

Following the visa denial, Musyoki kept communicating with Deborah and in December 2020, the mzungu woman opted to travel to Kenya and joined Musyoki in Kitui where he lives.

The 35-year-old nkted that since Deborah’s parents are late, he negotiated for dowry payment with her and her children.

“They said they wanted only KSh 100 and told me to take it to church as offering and she said that’s my dowry,” he recalled.

In February 2021, the two lovebirds tied the knot at Sheria House, and ‘strangers’ witnessed them exchange vows.

He said his wedding ring cost less than KSh 100.

“I bought a ring worth KSh 50 for my wedding and my wife used the one she had. She told me she didn’t mind the fact that I got a cheap ring saying what mattered her was me, her prince charming,” Musyoki explained.

Musyoki said after he disclosed to his mom that Deborah had children, she accepted her into her family and even gave her a Kamba name.
